To give you a better idea of the Kruger National Park's diverse habitats, an ecozone map has been designed to show you the different vegetation types found throughout the park. These ecozones are included in some of the park maps from the camp shops, but vary slightly from map to map.
By learning more about the different vegetation types in the Kruger National Park, and which animals are likely to be found in each, you can increase your chances of finding those species you really long to see or photograph. Cheetahs, for instance, prefer the open plains found in the open tree savannas around Lower Sabie and Satara, while the rare sable antelope prefers tall grass sourveld, such as the area around Pretoriuskop.
The 19 ecozones have each been given a different colour on our map. Simply scroll over the map below and an image showing a representative photograph of the vegetation type in that ecozone will appear. If you want to learn more about the plants and animals that occur in each ecozone, simply click on it.
